    I thought it was great. They cut all the stuff that i hoped they would. Not to mention that our chapter of FanForce (Edmonton), got a tour of the projection room because one of our members was the projectionist. It was SWEET! Anyways, how did you like it?


    Oh ya, and did any other chapters get on T.V.? 2 different stations came and interviewed us.

    Wow! That was fabulous! We had 19 people in costume at the Paramount - X-Wing Pilot, 3 Jedi, Leia, Padmé, Vader, Boba, and a whole bunch of other baddies from the 501st. I like seeing Ewan - so big *drool*. The details were amazing, you could see the texture on the costumes, on the skin (wow Taun We) and the background was so clear! You could see Jawa's inside the Sandcrawler and count the hairs on Yoda's head!
    THAT ROCKED! (More later when I'm more articulate).

    I wish we could have become a chapter in time to get in on that. :(

    I am going to see it in Halifax, though! :D

    You forgot the Imperial Officer. I'm not in the 501st. :p (Icon temporarily changed to me last night ;))

    London met up with YJN on the way to Toronto (meeting Chris and the others was awesome) then watched AOTC with Toronto and the 501st. As Lelila said, it was fabulous. Everyone in costume got in free (so everyone except PaulV :p) and we had a professional photographer taking pictures for Insider. He got a bunch of Vader strangling me, and me leading a group of Stormtroopers, charging the camera. I havn't had that much fun since graduation.

    That was really awesome to see it on the HUGE IMAX screen. The sound was also crystal clear. I loved [face_love] it! We are going to see it again before it stops playing at the IMAX. We have to! :)

    AOTC IMAX was good but not great.

    I have not seen an IMAX movie before so don't really have anything for comparison except the Initial release of AOTC. The IMAX screen is huge and adds alot of detail but at times it is almost to overwhelming, to fast, blurry. The sound was trully excellent, definitely worth the experience.

    Having seen AOTC several times, I didn't mind the absense of the deleted segments. Actually, I found that it made the movie better, by boosting the pace.

    Size matters not. Except on an IMAX screen.
    That is so true. The bigger the better.

    My biggest concern going into it was that the picture quality would be terrible when enlarged so much. But, I was very pleasantly surprised. :)

    I didn't care for AOTC in IAMX so much. I thought digital was better.

    Mostly I was upset by cutting Dooku's "This is madness" speech and that most of the scenes in Palpy's office were cut.... I love Palpy's office.
